Former GM shares his thoughts on Jets’ offseason

Former NFL General Manager, and Jets fan, Ted Sundquist, shares his thoughts on John Idzik’s offseason approach. Sundquist notes that while Jets fans are now asking for more money to be spent on high-profile free agents—such as DeSean Jackson—each GM’s approach is different, and Idzik has a calculated one. “Idzik manages money more effectively than Mike Tannenbaum, Breno...

Seattle Seahawks’ Draft Strategy Shaping Up ☆

For a draft-and-develop-minded organization, the Seattle Seahawks did not reap much in the way of first-season benefits from their 2013 draft class. This trend must not continue in 2014. With the major shots in NFL free agency already fired, the Seahawks are looking at a net loss in terms of free agency additions/subtractions. Having just missed out on defensive end Jared Allen,...

Scouting the Jets Free Agent Signings: Breno Giacomini

I don’t think anyone realistically saw it coming that the Jets would lose Austin Howard to free agency. It was reported months ago that the Jets main priority in free agency was to resign the right tackle who had been somewhat underrated over the past two seasons. Turns out that this was just the first unfulfilled report of many during this free agency period. When the Jets couldn’t...

It was pretty obvious by the end of last season that the New York Jets needed to bring in some offensive talent during the offseason. First they managed to sign former Seahawks offensive tackle Breno Giacomini to fill the void that Austin Howard left when he went to Oakland. And now they’ve managed to persuaded Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker to make New York his new home...

Giacomini, 28, was not expected to be back in Seattle and the fact that the Jets just lost Austin Howard to the Raiders has basically forced them to find a replacement. Zach Strief...

10 tackles that can help the Seahawks in the 2014 draft

One of the deepest positions in the 2014 draft is at offensive tackle. That’s good news for the Seahawks, whose offensive line was one of the few sore spots in their Super bowl season. Ranked in the middle of the pack in run blocking and often dead last in pass protection, the o line needs an injection of youth and talent in order to keep quarterback Russell Wilson healthy. A lot...

Can the Seahawks yank an elite guard in the draft?

As you might expect from a Super bowl champion, the Seattle Seahawks don’t have many weaknesses. They have the best defense in the NFL, possibly the best special teams, and one of the deepest rosters. If there is a major blemish it’s the offensive line. A while back I wrote that the team needs help on the O line as soon as possible. The best thing the group can do is to stay...

It may be a weird thing to say that a Super bowl champion team badly needs help with anything, but facts are facts and the fact is that the Seattle Seahawks offensive line sucks. There. I said it. Throughout the 2013 season a lot of excuses were made for this group. Yes, there were a number of injuries. Breno Giacomini missed seven games, Russell Okung missed eight, Max Unger missed...
